They show tax rates for the various brackets, capital gains rates (0% under 36250 single or 72500 married), 20% over 400k single or 450001 married. 15% in the middle.

There is a new 3.8% net investment income tax above 200k single, or 250k married, and a 0.9% wage tax on Medicare above 200K single or 250k married.

They did not give the qualified tax rate on dividends.

They omitted the Medicare penalties paid by retirees for excess income. Over 85K single or 170k married it is $42/mo Medicare and $11.60 Pt D for a total of 0.8% single. Above 107k single or 214k married, it rises to 1.5 to 1.67% single.
